Scored with audio off.

So I'm not the only one who had it even. Thank you. Finally someone agrees with me.

I still strongly believe that if anyone won the fight, it was Lara. Then again, he did get gifted a draw in his last fight with Carlos Molina, and he wasn't particularly incensed in the post-fight interview -- maybe he himself understands it was a close fight in which he drew the short end of the stick.

I can't argue that. I honestly didn't feel that Williams won the fight, but I did have it even, and I by no means consider it a robbery... The outrage is unbelievable, I think.

The clear rounds were all won by Lara (1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 11). A card with Williams winning has a mistake on it, because Lara definitely won those six rounds. I don't think 114-114 is wrong, but that means all the close rounds go to Williams. I preferred Lara's offensive and defensive work overall, that's why my card is on the opposite end to the spectrum. Williams was throwing a lot, but not landing anything of substance for me.

Dafs, those were the exact rounds I gave to Lara. Which is why I don't feel Williams won the fight (hence, my 114-114 card), but I also don't feel it was by any means a robbery.

dafs, There were some rounds that were very difficult to score, I feel, including several of the ones you mentioned (the 2nd and the 11th, for example). Lara did land the cleaner, showier punches, but he also conveyed the impression that Williams' constantly going to the body on the inside was wearing him down, or at least annoying him tremendously. I guess I tried to score those frames by answering the question of "who got debilitated more in those three minutes?" I think a 114-114 card is about as pro-Williams a card as I can fill out.

Rounds 2 and 7 were also close.

I can see giving the close rounds to 1 fighter or the other, but I mean; even in the close rounds Lara was throwing 3-5 clean left hands right on the knocker. Whilst Williams was throwing a lot but all on the arms and gloves.
